Goal

This document describes how to setup a separate, dedicated OID ldap server to handle replication and/or DIP synchronization/provisioning traffic.

The oidrepld is an LDAP CLIENT process for Replication. When starting the oidrepld using the oidctl command, the flags -h <host> -p <port> tell what host and port the ldapserver is running on.  

The odisrv is also an LDAP CLIENT process used for DIP synch/provisioning. When starting the odisrv using the oidctl command, the flags host= <host> port=<port> tell what host and port the ldapserver is running on.

Setting up a dedicated LDAP port for use by these servers facilitate easier debugging since all LDAP logging is now included in a separate log file.   Also, if, for whatever reason, the oidrepld/odisrv processes cause the oidldapd to crash, then normal OID/SSO operations are not affected as they are handled by another oidldapd process.
